For every one of us here, ensuring the long-term health and well-being of our beloved dogs is a top priority. You already know that just like humans, a dog's diet plays a pivotal role in their overall health. It's not just about today; it's about the enduring well-being and vitality of your companion for years to come. In this blog post, we'll delve into the long-term benefits of a high protein, low carb raw diet made with low-glycemic index starches from the wide array of premium ingredients found in Simply Raw®.
What is a High Protein, Low Carb Raw Diet for Dogs?
A raw high-protein, low-carb diet like Simply Raw® is a nutrition plan that prioritizes lean animal proteins, such as meat and organs, while significantly reducing the inclusion of carbohydrates, especially grains. This diet typically avoids processed foods and focuses on whole, uncooked ingredients much like what a dog's ancestors would have consumed in the wild. In essence, this holistic diet emphasizes the principles of simplicity, mirroring a more natural, ancestral diet for dogs.
Simply Raw® Supports Dogs' Long Term Health & Wellbeing
A high protein, low carb diet is biologically appropriate for
dogs because it aligns with their evolutionary history and digestive physiology. Dogs are, by nature, carnivores. Their digestive systems are well-suited for processing raw animal-based proteins. The low-carb aspect reflects the fact that dogs do not require high levels of carbohydrates in their diet; instead, they rely on protein and natural fats for their primary energy sources. A biologically appropriate diet like Simply Raw® this prioritizes foods that better cater to their nutritional needs and minimizes ingredients that are less suitable for their biological makeup, resulting in improved health, energy, and overall well-being.
Long Term Benefits of a Low Carb, High Protein Raw Diet Include:
1. Improved Weight Management: A diet with a higher protein content and fewer carbohydrates can help dogs maintain a healthy weight. This is especially crucial for preventing obesity and related health issues in the long term.
2. Sustained Energy: High-quality proteins provide a consistent source of energy, ensuring your dog stays active and energetic throughout their life.
3. Reduced Allergies: Grain-free diets, such as Simply Raw®, can be a game-changer for dogs with food allergies or sensitivities. By eliminating common allergens like wheat and corn, these diets may alleviate itching, digestive issues, and skin problems.
4. Enhanced Digestibility: Dogs can more efficiently digest protein and fat, making it easier for them to extract nutrients from their food.
5. Dental Health: Chewing on protein-rich foods and treats can help keep your dog's teeth cleaner and healthier in the long run.
Simply Raw® is Made With Low-Glycemic Carbohydrate Sources
Simply Raw® is grain free, low carb dog food. We don't use grains or highly processed simple starches. Instead, Simply Raw is made with complex carb sources that don't spike blood sugar. Low glycemic index sweet potatoes, purple potatoes & pumpkin take center stage, offering numerous benefits such as stable blood sugar levels, weight management, sustained energy, and dental health. By thoughtfully combining these low glycemic starches, Simply Raw® ensures a balanced, biologically appropriate diet that mirrors what dogs would naturally consume in the wild, contributing to their long-term well-being.
Long Term Benefits of Feeding Biologically Appropriate Food
What sets Simply Raw® apart is its thoughtful formulation, incorporating low-glycemic index starches and an impressive array of premium ingredients. Low-glycemic index starches are carbohydrates that are digested slowly, leading to a gradual release of sugar into the bloodstream. Over time, these long term benefits compound for a better quality of life for your dog
1. Steady Blood Sugar Levels: A diet with low-glycemic index starches helps maintain stable blood sugar levels in dogs, reducing the risk of diabetes and insulin resistance over time.
2. Weight Control: Low-glycemic carbohydrates can aid in weight management by promoting a feeling of fullness, discouraging overeating, and supporting a leaner physique.
3. Energy Stability: Dogs experience consistent, sustained energy levels without the energy spikes and crashes associated with high-glycemiccarbohydrates.
4. Enhanced Satiety: Low-glycemic index foods help dogs feel fuller for longer, which can deter begging and snacking between meals, contributing to a healthy, long-term weight.
5. Better Blood Lipid Profile: These carbohydrates can help maintain healthier blood lipid profiles, reducing the risk of cardiovascular issues.
Dogs Thrive When We Give Their Bodies The Food They Need
A diet rich in raw, high-quality protein sources like those found in Simply Raw®—meat, liver, bone broth, and whole egg—offers a myriad of benefits for your canine companion. This protein-centric approach is in alignment with a dog's natural dietary needs & their ancestral roots as carnivores. The benefits are numerous, including muscle development and maintenance, improved energy levels, better weight management, and enhanced satiety. Simply Raw® is made with bone broth as a protein source that also promotes digestion, healthy skin and a lustrous coat. As they age, many dogs develop joint problems that make tasks of daily living difficult. Luckily Simply Raw® is rich in antioxidants, anti inflammatory ingredients like berries and leafy greens, collagen and fish oil to help support joint health.
